If I remember correctly the gentoo HOW-TO says to do it, but after reading some threads on gentoo's forums, I didn't.

So no, I don't do that...

cheers

yeah i'd followed the gentoo, howto, but it was missing info on the CC=distcc as if you didn't need to add it.

do you have the line CC="distcc" in you make.conf per chance??

nope...

just FEATURES="ccache distcc" in the make.conf

some hosts in /etc/hosts/distcc/hosts

and this is my /etc/conf.d/distccd file

quite a few

Quite a few packages won't use distcc, because it can lead to errors. KDE, kernel 2.4, and others just won't use it unless you're using Mosix sources. I think kernel 2.6_pre5 tried to use distcc when I compiled it on one of my boxes the other day...

Although it works for the apps that I use :)
